Attorneys of Color

Our Attorneys of Color Affinity Group exists to encourage the professional development and success of our minority attorneys. 

This diverse community engages in internal and external activities that promote personal relationships and professional networks intended to support and enhance their overall experience with the firm. Our members gain and benefit from enhanced connectivity, which directly supports the firm’s longstanding goal of retaining diverse lawyers.

We envision a distinguished legal professional experience because we are valued for our diversity, encouraged to embrace our cultural heritages and identities, and inspired by the opportunities and inclusiveness that Williams Mullen affords us.  We instill in one another the desire for self-knowledge, self-direction, self-discipline and extraordinary responsibilities by networking with one another and supporting one another individually and Williams Mullen collectively.

“Connecting our attorneys of color and building a genuine community is critical to recruiting and retaining our diverse attorneys. We are better able to serve our clients when we bring broader perspectives to the complex challenges they face."
